To start off, this week’s Entree newsletter has details about a few just-opened and opening-soon spots in the Inland Northwest: Sweet Moments Bakery in Coeur d’Alene, SAVORx in the Spokane Public Market and Pho City on Howard Street. (Subscribe to the email newsletter here.)

The Park Bench Cafe in Manito Park is open for the season — just Fridays and weekends until June 17, when full hours go into effect. They’ve also got this summer’s live music schedule posted.

Food on the move: Fans of the Bistro Box, a beloved food truck in the Renton area, are sad to hear their favorite roving lunch spot is leaving the area. But their loss is Spokane’s gain — the truck plans to reopen here in Spokane with its signature Kobe beef sliders, hand-cut fries and other sandwiches and salads.

It’s a big birthday weekend for local breweries — Iron Goat is turning 1 and blowing out the candles at a party this Saturday, with live music and barrel-aged beers. In Pullman, Paradise Creek is turning 3 and releasing a new Hop Hammer Rye IPA.

Spo-Can, the craft canned beer festival at the Elk Public House, also returns this weekend. This week we wrote about why some folks say beer in a can just tastes better.

Pets gotta eat, too: The Spokane Humane Society’s pet food bank is in desperate need of donations. They’re taking pet food donations tomorrow morning at Boots Bakery from 8-9 am, among other ways. They’ll even take the opened bag of food your picky pet rejected.
